The new SI1000 series panel mount display/controllers from Solartron Metrology have a compact, elegant design, and are inexpensive and simple to use. Designed for use with the company’s displacement and gauging transducers, they are ideal for a wide range of laboratory and industrial linear position monitoring and control applications. The three models in the range offer simple ‘plug and play’ operation and have a seven digit red LED display that can be updated at up to 10 readings per second.
The SI1100 model provides up to 0.1um resolution when used with Solartron’s LVDT displacement and gauging transducers.
With 4-20mA and DC inputs, the SI1300 is particularly appropriate where long cable runs are required. A two-wire loop-powered 4-20mA connection to Solartron’s S or SR series displacement transducers for example produces a simple to install system with high performance. DC/DC operation is also standard for use with the DC versions of the S and SR models.
The SI1500 meanwhile is designed for use with digital probes, in particular Solartron’s high performance Orbit(R) based digital probes, linear encoders and modules.
Communication with PLCs is easy, with DC and 4-20mA outputs and alarm relay outputs provided across the range. RS232 and RS485 serial communications ports are also standard on all models.
With a case size of only 48mm (h) x 96mm (w) x 137mm (d), the SI1000 range is available from stock.
